Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: ... it is

well, i at least understand what he was trying to do as a vocalist and he doesn't bother me on this iko.... he is simply doing his part. certainly, THE MAIN reason he was brought in was to sing the high harmony parts, which he does pretty well....

that being said i do not find Vince's voice pleasing in any way.... which is pretty important wouldn't you say? so OK, he can sing back up -- but never should have been given a lead, which i believe he was on some dreadful song called Snowboarding in the Rain or something -- what do i know, i've never been able to listen to it for more than a second...

and that being said -- jerry manages to sound pretty pleasing on this version pf IKO-- i will give peaches that -- especially considering it was a good ten plus years by 95 since jerry could sing very well.


the problem w/vince was there was A LOT of time between lines of backup singing and he often chose to play various keyboards during those times -- not to mention, getting the band to do lots of bad covers. i dont know if it's true -- i am just blaming him -- if there is a song i really hate that they did it was Gimme Some Lovin, or Dear Mr Fantasy -- but now, those are somebody elses fault aren't they.......
